I'd love to remove the "no monetary gain" clause from lpmud, however, most=

contributors of former years have vanished off the net and can't be asked=

Otoh (and because other mails mentioned this), in the LPC world it is=
 acceptable
to ask for voluntary donations for the game, given that donators do not get
preferred treatment, and that the donations are used for the upkeep of the=
 game
only.

Similar, inclusion of the driver in software collections is usually ok as=
 long as
this has no effect on the price of the collection.
